ECI Launch Our Services

ECI Launch Services help children, ages birth to three, grow and learn. ECI Launch staff listen to a family's concerns and works with them to plan services. Each family will have a different plan, according to what is needed for their child. Infants and toddlers learn best from families and caregivers through activities in their daily lives such as feeding, bathing and playing. ECI services help families learn how to use these daily activities to help their children develop skills.

ECI Launch Staff focus on your child's strengths and encourages your family to do the same to help your child progress. ECI Launch staff work with your family in making decisions about services that will meet your child's needs. You will be involved in all assessments and intervention planning. All assessment and planning services are provided in the home or daycare at no cost to you. Developmental services are provided on a sliding fee scale for families whose incomes are more than 250% of the Federal poverty level.

Ages & Stages Questionnaire - ASQ

ASQ is a free, fun, quick and easy-to-use checklist. It gives you a chance to compare your child's skills to other children his/her age.

Comprehensive Developmental Evaluation

When a child is referred to ECI Launch for a developmental concern we always provide a full comprehensive evaluation. This is not a test of parenting skills or a test for your child. It is rather a wonderful playtime with you, your child and 2 ECI service providers. We come your home and get down on the floor with you and your little one. As we play together, ECI Launch staff talk with you about your child's daily routines, strengths & challenges and complete a skills checklist (DAECY) of all the things your child can do in each area of development: Speech/Language, Gross Motor, Fine Motor, Early Thinking Skills, Social/Emotional and Self Help Skills

Planning for Services

Parent & ECI Launch Service Providers discuss the developmental evaluation, your child's strengths/needs and the parent's goals for your child. Family strengths/needs are also discussed. An Individualized Family Service Plan is written based on goals. Frequency of service and the service provider is dependent on a child's and family's needs and schedule. Services begin within 28 days of the IFSP

How Much Do ECI Launch Services Cost?

All assessment and planning services are provided in the home or daycare at no cost to you. Developmental services are provided on a sliding fee scale for families whose incomes are more than 250% of the Federal poverty level.

ECI Launch asks families who can afford to do so to share in the cost of services. The amount a family pays for ECI Launch service is based on family size and income after allowable deductions. No child and family will be turned away because of an inability to pay. Those families receiving any Medicaid or federal assistance never pay for ECI Launch services.


UTMB's ECI Launch is part of a statewide program sponsored by the Texas Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services.
